We want to use VConsol for all virtual hearings; else what happened in Karnataka could occur: Kerala High Court

The judge made the remark while he was sitting as part of a division bench with Justice Shoba Annamma Eapen earlier today.

The bench was hearing appeals preferred by the Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board (KIIFB) and former State Finance Minister Dr. Thomas Isaac, challenging an order of a single-judge permitting the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to issue fresh summons to them in connection with a probe into KIIFB’s financial transactions.

During the hearing, standing counsel for ED, advocate Jaishankar V Nair informed the bench that the delay on the part of Additional Solicitor General ARL Sundaresan from joining the virtual hearing was due to the fact that lawyers have to first register and have an account on VConsol Court to access the virtual hearing.

This prompted Justice Mustaque to remark that even though lawyers have to register, VConsol offers better protection in terms of cyber security.
